Teams open a series of boxes, decrypt codes and uncover the correct DNA samples to place in the analyser in a quest to create a vaccine against a synthetic virus that threatens the world.
What is Outbreak?
A high energy, experiental learning team building activity. The challenge starts with teams watching an intriguing video. They learn that a few months ago a synthetic virus that destroys people’s ability to communicate and collaborate was discovered. The video tells the story of a group of scientists who while developing a vaccine against the virus became infected. They are now unable to cooperate and have locked away their findings.
It’s up to your team to discover the vaccine and save the world! You must open boxes by solving different puzzles and challenges in order to decrypt the codes and bring the DNA samples to the analyser. A screen will display a live image of the virus under a high-powered microscope. You must work quickly as the virus is rapidly spreading. Can your team discover the vaccine before the synthetic virus mutates, breaks the barrier of neutral cells and the infection spreads?
